I grew up in Henley –on –Thames, Oxfordshire and went on to achieve a BA honours Degree in design (product) from Colchester Institute in 1995.
On leaving university I got a job working for “The Sculpture Workshop” where I worked for 4 years learning all aspects of the moulding and casting process. I was involved in making moulds and casts for many prestigious artists including Anthony Gormley, Anish Kapoor and Sophie Ryder.
In 2001 I moved to Holmfirth, West Yorkshire and in 2004 set up my own moulding and casting company called “Sculptural Forms”. I have been trading for nearly 10 years and have customers across the country.
In 2006 I started to create my own sculptures alongside the moulding and casting business and over the following years I have built up a body of work. I sculpt in either clay or plasterlene and get inspiration from the surrounding flora and fauna. My sculptures are of an illustrative style and I exaggerate parts to create character and give each piece a personality. I sculpt for myself and hope others appreciate and ultimately make the viewer smile. I have always been interested in the use of movement within sculpture and have created a range of water features that compliment my other work.
I currently cast all my pieces in cold cast resin achieving different finishes such as a traditional bronze resin, verdigris bronze resin, rusted iron resin and copper. My work is a mix of limited and open edition pieces. I also enjoy working on public art pieces and undertaking commissions.
